The European Bioinformatics Institute in the United Kingdom is home to many “bio-curators​” who are attempting to create and organize a database of information about proteins. These researchers standardize and annotate data about protein sequences before entering the data into the database. This creates a large amount of data that other biologists can access and use in their research.

Which of the following statements is NOT true about these scientific databases?

A

They are always monitored by scientists ​so that data is input in the same way regardless of the researcher’s method or place of practice.

B

They increase access to information, making it easier for scientists in remote areas to use data from other institutions.

C

They create communities of scientists that help each other find patterns, conduct research and draw conclusions.

D

They create new chances for innovation by connecting unrelated pieces of information to draw new conclusions.
